Let's Make It
Wash and spin lettuce, tear into bite size pieces. Rinse and drain water chestnuts, drain mandarin oranges. Toast the chopped cashews (optional). I like to toast any nuts - it brings out the flavor, I think.
Drop the pea pods into boiling water for 1 minute - not more - and then into ice water to stop any cooking, drain and cut into thirds.
Put everything together, toss the salad with the dressing and lay the grilled chicken slices, pomegranate kernels and cashews on top.
